GABRIEL LEVENSON SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

In 1682, Penn established his
colony on the west bank of the
Delaware River. A practising
Quaker whose non-conformist
sect had been persecuted in Eng-
land, Penn wanted to create a
sanctuary of tolerance—both for
his own beleagured compatriots
and for other religionists, like the
Jews.
Jewish citizens of the city were
substantially involved in all the
historic events which occured
there, from the American Revo-
lution, the adoption of a Consti-
tution, the creation of the
Declaration of Independence, the
abolitionist movement, the Civ-
il War and many of the "firsts"
that took place in Philadelphia.
Greater Philadelphia's Jewish
population has grown from the
handful who found religious lib-
erty with William Penn in the
New World to nearly 250,000 at
present, making it the fourth
largest Jewish community in the
United States. The community
supports a wide range of syna-
gogues, day schools, cultural or-
ganizations, special events.
exhibits and performances.
A walking tour of historic
Philadelphia — and, more specif-
ically, of historic Jewish Philadel-
phia—begins far downtown, close
to Penn's Landing (where the
founding father first docked), at
